I'm sure you will find the answer to that question soon enough. Let me know how you like it. I love my iPad, but we would also like to get a laptop. Some things you just need to have an actual computer, and the tablet just won't do.

Congratulations, Taxi! We have had several laptops over the years and have pretty much stuck with Toshiba. Even my Netbook is Toshiba. Have fun with it.

I am about to make a road map for our hallway that shows where the bedroom and each of our offices are. We keep going into the wrong one, but it has only been two days. We should get used to it soon!

Currently searching for some "oomph" so I can head out to grocery shop. Once again I've waited until the last day of the ad sales. Still trying to shake off the fog from two very exciting baseball games yesterday. It's ALWAYS exciting when your team wins. Hope the game is over by 7:00.

CG, I hear you about trying to find the oooomph. As my Mother would say, "my get up and go has got up and left"!

TB is out walking Violet, and then we are heading across the river to get our gluten free bread and buns. Then we will stop for tacos for a late lunch and then go to the bottle depot with all our club soda cans and juice bottles (we drink a lot of virgin spritzers around here ).

Then it is back home to see if we can find our spare bathroom and living room under the rest of the "stuff".

We just got home from the beach trip a little while ago. DH went to pick up our dog Pippen from the vet where we boarded her this week and I'm trying to make up to the cats for leaving them behind. A friend's daughter fed them while we were gone.

Right now I am fighting with Windows 8 and the new laptop. I guess I better go downstairs and find a Windows 8 tutorial. I will also see if I can find a copy of the user's guide so I can print it. Whatever the reader that is on this computer is, I hate it. And the danged cursor is frozen.

Windows 8 is what scares me the most about my laptop having problems.
